We had lunch there on Sunday. Fab location, right by the Rhine. The waiter was very rude. They did not have any menus in English and our waiter got very annoyed when we tried to ask questions about any items on the menu, he made no effort to try to explain.

It is what it is. It's for tourists and is by the Rhein. The beer is fine and the food was quick to be brought and fine. They're not going to win awards but they are serving food that's what you expect. I wasn't paying but I believe the prices were a bit high.
